An Indian servant confessed to killing and sexually assaulting at least 19 children and women and stuffing their dismembered remains into a storm drain outside the house where he worked, officials said. The killings in a well-to-do section of Noida, a New Delhi suburb, prompted outrage after relatives of the victims said police had ignored their complaints as up to 38 people went missing over two years. Nearly all victims were from poor families working as servants in the area. The suspect, Surender Koli, was a servant at a house in Noida. He and the home's owner were arrested in December as police began unearthing the remains of 19 children and women from storm drains abutting the property. Koli confessed to the killings during a closed court hearing on Thursday, R.K. Gaur, a spokesman for India's Central Bureau of Investigation, said Friday. Gaur refused to provide additional details, saying they were "between the state and the accused."
